(It is recommended, though not required, that you have taken the Intro to Veneering class before taking this class)
A step up from the straight lines and square corners of the chessboard, in this class you will learn the techniques necessary to create a veneered, circular tabletop.
In this class you will learn how to tune up and sharpen the veneer saw to allow you to make precision cuts. You will learn the various types of matching, such as slip, book, four way and radial matching. We will also cover the use of the proper substrate and the best type of glue to use for your specific application. Borders and inlay will also be a used on your radial matched project. You will also learn the basic use of the vacuum press which we will use to press your project. More advanced use of the vacuum press is covered in John’s Vacuum Pressing class. The classes can be taken in any order. If you have not done any veneer work, you might want to consider starting with the Introduction to Veneering class
